Bruno eats everything like a vacuum cleaner, doesn't chew at all and his back teeth are showing it. Judy eats as fast as he does, but she chews. I had them on Diamond L&R naturals which is a very small kibble - good for a vacuum dog like Bruno. Then they came out with Diamond L&R Naturals for large breed dogs but the kibble is big so I have been feeding that to Judy and small kibble to Bruno. There is a slight difference in amounts of ingredients, but the main difference is that Large Breed L&R contains Glucosamine condrotin which I would like Bruno to have too. Is there a problem with a dog swallowing large kibble? I know it would digest, but think small would be easier on him. I can just give him a supplement. It would be easier to feed four dogs two different foods instead of three. Ideas or opinions?
Jake inhales the EVO large bites. I can't stand how tiny the small bites are, so I just let him eat the large bites quickly. I used to put stuff (balls, kongs, etc.) in his bowl to slow him down - could you try that? Or you could put his food in a buster cube or something like that to slow him down - we did that with Jake for a while too. Now we're just lazy

I have the same problem with Adi, she literally inhales the food- she's still on puppy food but will very soon begin to introduce regular food- hopefully largers kibbles will make her chew? is this wishful thinking? I feed her in stages, pour a little out- she inhales it, make her wait about 45 seconds, my thinking, its going down slowly, I could be completely wrong and wasting time. I do this about 3 times untill all food is gone. Then I give her a few fresh green beans and carrots so she can chew, chew chew! Do they ever outgrow this? she's 6 months old
